Hey,

Well last night was a stinker of a game, Wings lose to LA 5-0, yuck!

1 - Quick makes another outstanding save, just to the left of his thumb is the puck.

Dude? Really?! I'm using the D3 and 70-200 on all of those shots, and since I'm shooting at ice level on the holes in the glass they are prime seating for shooting, for comfort? Well, not!! But the pictures come out all right.


well it's a good thing, 'cuz I'm running out of superlatives!

Nice work Steve, like in #3 you can just see his eyes.
Thanks Chris! Yes, the eyes have it when you get the puck in there, since the greats always have their eye on the prize. :smile:

Steve, stinker from the RW side, Quick was unFREAKINbelievable. Let's hope we don't run into them anytime soon, I think they are 5-0 the last five times we faced off....

OBTW, go ahead, you can tell ramblingman...

Uh.... I use the 200-400 from the concourse,

and I also use ALL OF MY VISION AT ALL TIMES WHEN SHOOTING FROM THE ICE LEVEL. I'm sorry, did I Y-E-L-L that loud enough???!!!!!! I USE ALL OF MY VISION AT ALL TIMES WHEN SHOOTING FROM THE ICE LEVEL. Case in point, I am crouched on the steps at the glass holes to shoot, it's not a comfortable shooting position trust me, and when the beer guys sell beer and kick me in the kidneys, rowdy drunks spill beer on me to pound the glass (illegal I might add), and the patrons step over me and kick me too I'm not happy, but I digress and whine. I KEEP BOTH EYES OPEN AT ALL TIMES!!! Why? During the 1st period I had a HARD check happen RIGHT ON THE HOLE!! Uh, did I get hurt, NO! Did I see it coming? YES! Had I kept my eye on the ice I would have gotten knocked OUT by the hit on the glass, no kidding. Since I backed off from it just as it was happening, natural instinct, the glass rocked back at me at least 6", you would have seen me on replays, my biggest nightmare!

BTW, I use the 70-200 on ice level, 200-400 on the concourse. Any questions? :tongue: :biggrin: :tongue:

I could never shoot hockey because I wouldn't know how to caption the pics:

"Joe Smith hits the round flat ball with his club but Al Jones was there to grab it before it went in the goal thing. Joe Smith then proceeded to knock the hell out of Al for grabbing the ball"

Good stuff as usual. Mississippi's only hockey team went down with Worldcom (Bernie owned the team).

OMG Dennis, I'm still laughing at your post!!! You should write captions for me next time... seriously!! No, not seriously, yours are better. :biggrin:
